Beginning July 1, 2020, there are several updated changes to the child support statute that are going to go into effect.  The Colorado Child Support Statute is contained within C.R.S. §14-10-114. 

For most parties that are mediating, going through the divorce process, or who are already divorced, that read this, these updates will not have a significant impact on future modifications or existing support orders.  This post is going to discuss the changes related to the imputation of income in several specific arenas, mandatory school expenses, and uninsured medical expenses as set forth below.

The courts have the authority to find a party, in the cases where maintenance and child support are at i...

In another era, perhaps, the person who earned the money wielded authority at home. In today's intimate relationships (where the emphasis is on partnership), more money does not buy more votes in relationship decisions.

Each person in a relationship makes contributions with different qualities, and will make different contributions at different times. One person may indeed contribute more money to their relationship, at least for a time, and that contribution has important qualities of support and safety.

Other people will contribute more fun and play to the relationship. Or more organization. Or more patience. And what about:... romance... creativity... leadership...  spontaneity… caregiving... sexi...

Boulder Court Covid-19 Q&A

By Janette Jordan

As a follow up to our previous posting on March 24, 2020, the Boulder County District Court, through the Boulder County Bar Association, hosted an online presentation to answer practitioner’s questions.

Currently as of April 10, 2020, the Courts are rescheduling any and all non-emergency domestic relation matters for dates after May 31, 2020. 

What if I need to mail something?

Financial uncertainty. Fear and anxiety. Worrying about what the future will bring.

These are all familiar experiences for people going through a divorce.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, they are becoming familiar to almost all of us.

Most people, if they are lucky, experience only a few earth-shaking events in their lifetime. A life-threatening diagnosis. The sudden and unexpected loss of a career. A divorce. On the surface, these events can simply seem bad—something to be gotten through--with an eye toward returning to “normal” as quickly as possible.

It’s been my experience, that in our rush to return to normal, we can miss the precious gifts that come only from such challenging circumstances.

When I was...

In this new reality that is life amidst the coronavirus outbreak in our country, and the world at large, there are many questions facing parents as to how to navigate this challenging and uncertain time. 

For parents who are divorced or separated, the challenges inherent in this situation may feel even more daunting given that their children may be going back and forth between two homes. For high conflict families, the current situation may pose opportunities for increased conflict. Even with amicable co-parents, the increased tension and anxiety many are feeling at the moment may be leading to short fuses and frazzled interactions. 

In this article we consider some possible issues faced by co-parent...
